I believe Luther Vandross Superstar is the most iconic rendition of Karen Carptenter’s classic song. Usher has also covered this song, but Octavius Womack really knocks it out of the park with his smooth R&B voice. He’s a new singer in LA CA
This videos is long overdue! Octavius Womack actually mentioned singing The Carpenters – “Superstar” in the style of Luther Vandross to me when we recorded our Adele – Rolling in the Deep / Gnarls Barkley – Crazy Mashup. Finally the schedules and stars were all in alignment, and we were able to do not only Superstar, but 2 cover songs!
If you are not yet familiar with the musical stylings of Mr. Luther Vandross, it’s about time you do a little research via YouTube. Might I recommend giving a listen to “Always and Forever”, “Never Too Much”, or maybe check out his duet with Mariah Carey. The point is, his voice is like buttah, and you definitely want to put some of it into your ears. Also, if you can find it, I’ve always liked the cover of Luther Vandross – Superstar performed by Usher, so yeah give that one a listen too.
Thank you to all of you for subscribing, liking, and commenting, on all of our videos. We love making them and can’t wait to show you more! Stay tuned, because Luther Vandross – Superstar is just one of our Octavius Womack, songs. Later this week, We will be uploading Bill Withers – Ain’t No Sunshine by Octavius Womack as well!
Keyboard by Austin Peralta – May you forever rest in peace.
